The pizza is Italian style, thin crust pie, minimal toppings which are characteristic of pizza from Scilly. A good selection of local beers. Friendly and courteous staff made the choices easy and the pizza was delicious. This place desires a return visit.

My husband and I dined here on a Sunday evening after a weekend of big seafood meals. We were ready for more casual food which we found at Panini's. It was too chilly for us to dine outside, but the inside atmosphere was nice.

Nice location on the waterfront park in downtown Beaufort S.C.. Wood oven (gas) fired pizzas, broad variety. Their she crab soup may very well be the best in S.C. Very tasty with a small kick of heat Mmmmmm!

Panini's has a great outdoor patio with views of the waterfront. Their prices are average for the area, but the food is just okay. If you're looking for great Italian food, look elsewhere.

If you're concerned about this, I recommend avoiding this place all together! The food is great: well seasoned, presented and portions are ample. Of course, they do have salads with oil and vinegar on the side to dress it up. More
